crimea and russia. we are waiting for a critical news conference from secretary of state, john kerry are, at the center of the worst crisis since russia and the west. i arrived in kiev just hours ago. one of his first stops in independence square. you can see him at the makeshift memorial being created to honor those killed in the demonstrations on the street. the secretary of state is offering money and support to the new government. on the front lines, tensions are rigz. are rising. >> that was a dramatic picture seen at a military base in crimea. russian troops said they fired warning shots in the air as unarmed ukrainian soldiers approached them. >>> most importantly for today, for the first time since this crisis began, we have heard directly from russian president vladmir putin. he was defiant. his first news conference since ordering the military into ukraine. he says, there is no need to use more force for now. he does warn that any force does remain an option. >> translator: if i make the decision to use military force, it will be completely legitimate and correspond to the norm
talk about the options that are on the table? >> there are a number of options. kerry did that to some extent. saying we are not going to participate in the meetings in june. russia's actions have not been the actions of a g-8 nation. and if this persists, than other countries will pulling out of the meeting all together. that would be an embarrassing blow and kerry also spelled out that yes, sanctions are on the table. and going beyond that, there could be trade sanctions. just as russia has been trying to increase trade with the u.s. as the economy slows. going a step further too, russia has worked so hard for organizations like the g-8. the u.s. and al lies could work to remove them from those. they are looking at how to support the government. >> we talk about leverage here. we are going to follow the developments but there is another big story weather, we'll tell you who is going to get hit by another big winter storm. >>> so another week, another big winter storm. surprise, surprise. the mid add atlantic and northeast will be getting hit with snow. this was the scene this morning

was fired. secretary of state john kerry is expected to touchdown in kiev. is he just going to try to show support for ukraine's fledgling government. let's pick up the story there. we are live at that air base in crimea where you saw the altercation. what's the latest? >> reporter: well, what we understand from the commander of this base, which is a military base north of sa vast pole, he received an ultimatum that by noon, this base must surrender to russian forces. clearly, the situation here is quite tense. now, right behind me, there are cr ukraiyoukrainian soldiers, some arms at the ready. some of their wives and relatives have come bringing food and refreshment for them. the wives as well saying they are here to stay despite the empation of an ultimate -- implementation of an ultimatum. >> two very different narratives being told here. but there on the ground where ben is, you have crew yan january families saying they feel they are under siege by the russians. president obama is holding high-level cabinet talks at the white house. this happened last night. the plan moving forward i
? >> providing this off ramp. >> this morning, secretary of state john kerry arrived. >> kerry's arrival coin sides with a proposed pact -- >> will europe go along with the united states to make it truly effective? >> there's not a clear black and white. >> that's because europe and the u.s. aren't entirely on the same page. >> merkel basically questioned putin's state of mind. >> he is living in a different world and the europeans understand that. >> there is a strong belief that russia's action is violating international law. >> in a press conference today, vladimir putin said i am certain that the ukrainian military and the russian military will not be facing each other. they will be on the same side in a fight. but hours before he said that, russian troops outside a ukrainian base fired warning shots at unarmed ukrainian soldiers who were marching towards them. according to vladimir putin, those were not russian troops, but, as he put it, quote, local defense units. putin continued to deny that russian troops have invaded ukraine. putin had this to say about what he called the united stat
kerry set to meet in paris just hours from now. they are meeting there for talks to try to end the crisis. putin is talking of expanding his military operation in crimea. the russian president says there are no russian soldiers in ukraine. he insists they are just local self defense forces. >> russian forces have seized part of a ukrainian missle defense unit. they are trying to find a solution. we have reporters on the ground in ukraine, russia, and washington this morning covering all the angles. let's begin with cnn white house correspondent. what are you hearing from the white house this morning? >> reporter: nothing this early at this point. today john kerry is going to meet with his counter part, the russian foreign minister. leaders there are expressing concern at not seeing russia at this point at the table to talk about this situation. that talk between secretary kerry and the foreign minister, as far as we know at this point, is expected to go forward in a matter of hours. everyone is hoping that that does continue. but the views between the u.s. and russia have sharp
russian counterpart over the phone to pull back the troops. secretary of state john kerry flies to ukraine tomorrow. after the meeting today with the president of moldova, another former soviet republic whose security may depend on the result in ukraine. on sunday, kerry was quite strident in his condemnation of russia. >> this is an act of aggression that is completely trumped up in terms of its pretext. it's really 19th-century behavior in the 21st century. >> financial markets today appear to be exacting their own revenge on russia, and investors as a whole. u.s. markets are down triple digits in midday trading. while the main russian exchange lost about 11% of its value and the russian ruble hit an all-time low against the dollar. still, the question remains, how should the u.s. respond to this crisis, which began after the ouster of ukraine's pro-russia regime last month? the answer among some hawks is, naturally, first blame president obama. the "washington post" editorial section wrote today, "president obama has led a foreign policy based more on how he thinks the world should oper
and this morning, secretary of state kerry suggesting an aid package for crew yan. david cameron announcing boycott the paralympics in sochi to this start week. we have three reports, ian williams is in ukraine. we start with ian williams. >> reporter: craig, good day to you from the center of the slightly bizarre spectacle of protesters in the shadow of a statue of lenin. but at same tootimes, yesterday of supporters of the new government in kiev leaving dozen injured. sinister when we saw a militia-type group take over the city hall here. now, they broke in, they stayed there for a day. then equally as mysteriously, they disappeared sunday morning. and today, there were lines of riot police waiting out the front. now, the protesters here in the shadow of lenin have their own barricades. they have their own flowers, pictures. but these are of former riot policemen that died in the clashes in kiev a few days ago. they are clearly very encouraged by events in crimea and hope russia will react here. the big fear, of course, is that russia is trying to kree yacrea situation, stir up chaos and instabil
options and setting the stage for the next step. secretary of state john kerry is leading the diplomacy from paris now, where he's getting ready to meet with his russian counterpart in the next hour. earlier he met with ukrainian foreign minister and british foreign minister. back in washington, president obama is pushing that diplomatic off-ramp to russia, pull back troops, instead let international monitors make sure ethnic russians are okay. the president spent nearly an hour yesterday talking to the key european player in all of this, german chancellor angela merkel, and he told democrats at a fundraising dinner last night, "we may be able to deescalate over the next days and weeks, but it's a serious situation and we're spending a lot of time on it." at a budget event yesterday, he struck a similar tone. >> president putin is pausing for a moment and reflecting on what's happened. there is a strong belief that russia's action is violating international law. i know president putin seems to have a different set of lawyers making a different set of interpretations, but i don't think t
to eric holder. thanks, pete. >>> secretary kerry has called his russian counterpart lavrov, russia scrambled jets along the border and gunman seized buildings in crimea, the site of the russian naval base. for the latest i'm joined by chief foreign correspondent richard engel. this is alarming to say the least. we don't know what russia's intentions are, is this diplomacy or something real? >> reporter: i'm still shocked secretary kerry used the rocky reference in his interview with you. once i've gotten past that there have been incredible developments here over the past few -- last 24 hours or so. right now they seem to be calming down slightly, better than they were this morning. what happened overnight and early today, several gunmen, maybe 30 to 50 heavily armed, some with anti-tank weapons and sniper rifles took over the parliament in crimea. they hoisted the flag and have been barricading themselves in there all day. the speaker of the crimean parliament wants to hold a referendum that would decide crimea's fate. many of ethnic russians and want to join up with russia. there
in kiev. so we're awaiting the president. his advisers, secretary of state kerry, national security adviser susan rice, have said that -- have warned russia against intervention in the affairs of ukraine, but there's been no indication how the u.s. might respond to it. >> can you give us a sense of this resurfacing of viktor yanukovych, who surfaced. where did he surface and give us an idea of what the surroundings were around that? >> well, he resurfaced in moscow, eric. said he was still the legal leader, if you will, of ukraine, though that is definitely not the white house belief. he said that he had fled out of fear for his own safety and that of his family, and gave no indication he was prepared to abdicate, though officials here say he has done precisely that by leaving the country at a time of crisis. they say ukraine's parliament acted lawfully in electing a transition government. it's that government the u.s. is working with along with nato and the monetary fund to provide ukraine the money it needs to get through this period. and as far as the folks here are concerned, he
danger. secretary of state kerry reacted this way to putin. he is not going to be able to gain by. this he may have troops some period of time in crimea unless he resolves. this the fact is he is going to lose on the international stage. he that may find himself with asset freezes russian business. american business may call back there may be a further tumble of the ruble. there is a huge price to pay. >> but the only way russia will lose is if president obama moves quickly to punish that nation. the way to do that is to move against russian banks. last september, senator richard blumenthal of connecticut urged president obama to slap sanctions on russian banks because they were propping up the assad regime in syria. the president did not do that and assad is still killing innocent people today. but now mr. obama to do it. because that's the only way putin will pull back. the u.s.a. has to power, has the power to crush the russian currency the ruble which is already in trouble. freezing russian assets and boycotting russian banks would badly damage the russian currency. that's the

play a montage because the president made a big deal about the so-called reset. john kerry was also asked about it over the weekend. here is a montage going through it, through 2009. this is the interview yesterday, take a watch. >> we want to reset our relationship. so we will do it together. >> i am somebody who genuinely believes that the reset button has worked and that we are moving in a good direction. >> marco rubio will be on this set, saying that it is time to acknowledge the reset with russia is dead. do you acknowledge that? >> well, i don't know what you mean by the reset? >> the reset that this administration called for. >> i know, but long ago we have entered into a different phase with russia. i don't think this is a moment to be proclaiming one thing or another. >> the reset if i'm correct was the following. the reset was that we give up nothing, except we give up some of our nuclear power. and then of course the concessions we denied the missile defense to poland and the czech republic. and the reset is that the russian president takes on edward snowden. the next re
to this counter message that's come from administration officials today. you heard it from chuck hagel, john kerry, saying very publicly and very sternly, don't do anything that can be misinterpreted. don't go into the country. but it's interesting. do they trust putin? that's a question. john kerry was asked that question today. and his answer was very interesting. he said, listen, he has made these assurances. and in kerry's words those assurances have quote some value. it's not exactly a winning endorsement of the trust that u.s. officials have in president putin. >> what about ukraine's ousted president? he's still whereabouts unknown, right? >> reporter: that's right. he is. but he's made plans to have a press conference tomorrow in russia. and russian state media is reporting that he is in fact already in russia. you know there's been an arrest warrant issued for him in ukraine, russian state media saying that russia has accepted his request for security. but this is something else that john kerry referred to today. he said that vice president biden has tried to reach him for over the last 1

from u.s. officials ranging from secretary kerry, secretary hagel right up to the top, right up to the president. you saw his comments yesterday. it is a sobering development. the fact is, u.s. officials were already telling us yesterday that those masked troops on the ground as of yesterday in and around crimea were russian so now you have a public in effect acknowledgment from the russian government that the president wants to send troops in there, this authorization. i think the other point is that you can see this as an intelligence failure by the u.s. officials had been telling us in the last 48, 72 hours that it was their assessment that the russians would not go in, and here you have it happening. it is not the way they did it in georgia in 2008. you remember when russia sent troops into the country of georgia in 2008 in a more sort of visible, tangible invasion, tanks rolling across the border. there are no tanks rolling across the border but you do have a public authorization of force and more of maybe you can call it a stealth invasion, perhaps. you have the helicopter

are issuing a warning to russia to not create a conflict. >> secretary kerry is speaking to the press this morning and he is going to try and calm the fast-moving events on the ground. while viktor yanukovich claims he is still the president, the white house is working with a new prime minister that needs to quickly unite a divided ukraine. with russian warplanes on the border, secretary kerry urged restraint on thursday. >> we believe everybody now needs to step back and avoid any kind of provocations. >> he stressed ukraine alone should decide its fate. >> it's not our choice. it's not russia's choice it's the choice of the people of ukraine. >> but like russia the united states is involved behind the scenes, and pushing transitional government to include all parties, and it plans to offer ukraine a $1 billion loan to prop up the family economy. when the crisis began to fall supporters threw their support to the protesters, and even feeding them. obama stopped short of praising this evolution. and then president bush hailed the orange revolution as a budding de
john kerry is going to have difficult fi in explaining america's position when it comes to equal rights. >> josh, these things get pushed in the republican legislatures by the ted cruz wing of republicanism, which is number one, we don't care about the party. number two, we just want to cast this vote. we don't care. we would like to win, but if we don't win, it's important for us to cast this vote saying we want this. how is anyone going to be able to suppress that in the republican legislatures? >> i think it's happened in arizona right now. i think you're seeing in ohio, the bill that was proposed has been withdrawn by its sponsors. there are certain things that have tremendous grassroots energy behind them on the right. where there's resistance, business group, certain national politicians like mitt romney trying to push the party to the center on this issue. in some cases you get a lot of pu pushback. i think there's a real distinction to be drawn in arizona. people look at sb-1070, the anti-immigration bill. why did she veto this but sign that. sb-1070 is popular in arizona. she's
that secretary of state john kerry reached out to the ukranian president today. you're having certainly high level contacts with the u.s., talk of a mediation mission, a talk of international monitors. do you think international monitors would be received well there? the capital? >> reporter: i think definitely they would be received well right now. i mean, ukraine has gone out and reached out to the united nations and the european unions to send these monitors. one of the big sticking points for the russians is they say that the ethnic russians in the crimea and other parts are going to be discriminated against, that they will become second-class citizens. and the government here has said that international monitors can observe and make sure that these people aren't being discriminated against. i think that plays very well into the ukranian government if they are allowed to move freely about the country. but you have a lot of difficulty in moving around in the crimea right now. so it would be interesting to see if they would be able to deploy freely throughout the entire country, jim. >> th
and kerry, whoever is doing this, needs to start. there's one other problem. nobody controls anything in ukraine at the moment. putin's trying to control something, but the moderates don't control the fascists in the streets. the united states doesn't control the government in kiev, that's why kerry is going there tomorrow. not to ask what they want, to tell them to chill out. they have to calm down if they want us to back them. putin is trying to control something. i think those troops, i'm not sure, were from the naval base. it's not an invasion. let's be grown-ups, crimea is russia, it is part of russia, and what's happened this last week ends that story. it's never going to leave russia again, whether it's independent, part of ukraine or part of russia. that story is over. >> i'm going to leave it there. fascinating debate, thank you both for joining me. this will, of course, rumble on hopefully for not too much longer before it gets resolved. it's a tense and dangerous situation. i appreciate both of you for your clarity on that. >>> a beautiful young woman shot to death, what re
